Great variety of traditional independent shops amongst the usual chains you'd expect to see on the high street. Don't be afraid to explore all of the side alleys and streets as there are some very pleasant surprises.

It is very old and yet so clean and well taken care off. It houses a wonderful large organ, many ancient Effigies under its gorgeous ceilings with the longest arched Cathedral roof in England. We enjoyed the evening prayer and the parade outside the Cathedral for the new bishop, complete with a marching band last Saturday.
